Hartselle man sentenced for distributing substance laced with fentanyl


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — A Hartselle man was sentenced to 12-and-a-half years in prison Monday for distributing a substance laced with fentanyl in November 2018.

Michael Anthony Sain, 32, will serve 151 months in prison after he pleaded guilty to distributing the substance that caused serious bodily harm to an individual.

“The battle to save our young people from overdosing on fentanyl and other dangerous drugs is one we must win,” Assistant United States Attorney Robert Becher said.  “The drug dealers in North Alabama need to know that we will prosecute them vigorously and that they will spend a substantial portion of their lives behind bars.”
